FEATURED CREW:


We are from a town called Umeå, it's located in the northern half of Sweden. It's kind of a crappy town to practice parkour in, because it is very flat. That's why we almost prefer training in rural areas (woods, rocks etc).

Most of the members of Grounded have known each other forever.

We are all great friends and most of us got to know each other around the age of 5-7. Living outside of town, we always climb trees only when we were younger, it hasn't stopped yet, and we are now all between 18-20 years old). We even have a huge treehouse around 5 meters above the ground.

Anyway, when we were younger, we were very explosive. We loved pushing the limits of what our bodies could take in terms of endurance. Jumping from tree to tree is just one of the things we did on a daily basis. After over six years of this, it got kind of tiresome, and we wanted to try something new.


ROBERT

One year later, we found the BBC advert Rush Hour, featuring David Belle, and we were hooked instantly. We started practicing parkour (or what we thought parkour was, there wasn't a lot of information on the internet at the time) the very same day as we saw the advert.

A few months later, we arranged northern Sweden's first jam. Aside from us, two guys showed up. One of them later became a Grounded member.

Now we've been practicing parkour for over 2 years, and as most of us still live outside of town, we practice equally much, if not more, in nature as we do in urban enviornments.


LUDVIG

We've been talking to the police quite a bit, and there's no real problem with them, nor the authorities. They mostly leave us to our own buisness.

Parkour is getting very big in Sweden. Nobody knew anything about it when we first started our, but now everyone seems to at least have some idea. It's great to see.

My Best,
Ludvig
